Trouble with Debugging Fun Facts

Hey guys, I'm having trouble with the Debugging aspect of the Fun Facts application in the Android track.

I set my breakpoint exactly as Ben had in the video, and click on the Debug icon exactly as he did. It seems to properly initialize and inserts a check mark into the breakpoint, but the line never turns blue as in the video and all of the 'step over' 'step in' and 'step out' buttons are completely shadowed out and non-clickable.

My emulator is already running, so I don't think it has anything to do with an unitialized emulator.

I wish I could attach a photo, but does anyone have an idea about what may be going on?
